IGT Signs Las Vegas Deal

September 6, 2012

International Game Technology (IGT) was the very first online casino platform provider to win one of the newly minted online gambling licenses in the USA. When we heard several months ago that IGT had been approved by the Nevada Gaming Control Board for one of these licenses we just know big things were going to happen, so we have been keeping a close eye upon International Game Technology. Therefore, we were not exactly surprised to hear of a deal that IGT has cut with real world casino Hard Rock Hotel and Casino to provide services for the casinos online gambling site. However, we were a little surprised of the actual platform, which IGT will be providing. IGT is the developer, owner and operator of DoubleDown Casino, which is arguably the top social slots application on Facebook. It would appear that IGT is now granting Hard Rock Hotel and Casino a license to use many of the DoubleDown Casino games on its own online casino site.

DoubleDown Casino has been expanding its portfolio of online slots quite a lot recently and added some truly great video slots such as Da Vinci Diamonds, which we reported on just a few weeks back. Therefore, it is probably sensible to assume that Hard Rock Hotel and Casino will now be hosting their own versions of these online slots, on their own online casino site that compliments the real world casino by offering 24/7, 365 days a year online gambling for customers who cannot visit Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in person.

We have to say that we are totally enthralled by the happenings in the USA with regards to the trading partnerships being drawn up between some teal major players in the online gambling market since the new licenses began to be given out. We are sure that IGT has a few more tricks up its sleeve, and will keep readers informed of any new happenings.
